Abstract:

"'All the wonders of the world in your own home in three dimensions...' This was the magic and charm of the stereoscope for millions of Victorian families. And now, a century after its heyday, we can experience again the wonders of the stereoscope. Within this slipcase your will find: A history of stereographic photography, with 160 illustrations in full color and in two colors --A specially designed three-dimensional viewer* --48 stereo cards--facsimiles of the nineteenth and early twentieth century originals--in full color and in two colors. Now in your own home, in three dimensions: the Leaning Tower of Pisa, the American Indian, Hamlet, Hooker's Sea Bear, Ancient Egypt, the Happy Homes of England, Majestic Vistas--and assorted examples of the historic, comic, artistic, and sentimental scenes so dear to the hearts of our forebears who produced, bought, and were thrilled by these daguerreotypes, ambrotypes, and paper prints in the days when the stereoscope was the rage all over the world."--Slipcase.
